Medellin, Colombia – November 13, 2012: Bancolombia, a global financial services leader, announced today that Finacle from Infosys has enabled the bank to operate a seamless platform across Latin America and consolidate operations from across the region into a single, state-of-the-art system.
Using Finacle’s universal banking solution from Infosys, Bancolombia can now monitor and interface with all its branches around the clock.

Whether it’s a bank in Panama, Puerto Rico, or the Cayman Islands, Bancolombia now operates all back-office functions using one platform.
Finacle also gives Bancolombia a competitive edge by helping it process transactions in real-time. The bank had become accustomed to collecting its transactions and processing them overnight.

Yepes, President, Bancolombia. “This flexibility has been key in getting closer to our clients through our subsidiaries, who now feel only a heartbeat away from our organization as a whole.”
